Here's a good old song called Babyface. I had a reed stick right at the end of the song; bummer! I thought I had that reed fixed so it wouldn't do that.

Note layouts are the same, standard solo. Unless you order something else from Seydel, who will make you whatever you want.
Suzuki makes their 12s in a few keys. C D A G I believe. Maybe more.

Hi Lithy

Welcome to the club, I live in Canberra and originally from UK (London). Practically neighbours obviously. You should scoot over to the song of the month activities under Techniques and Learning to play.

Then what is the note pattern in a C cross slide harp at slide out and in position?

Secondly, is Scx12 available in different keys like Seydel Deluxe?

I finally got a start on this tune today, and it seems like a lot of fun, and more opportunities to vamp (usual caveats re terminology) the life out of it.

On a side note, though I know the Wabash Cannonball is a fictional train, or originated as fictional but one made real later, I'm reading a book I read in my heady youth, 'Old Glory' by Jonathan Raban. It's a travelogue about him taking a boat down the Mississippi, from Minneapolis/St. Paul to New Orleans. And by boat, I mean a small one with an outdoor motor, not a cruise ship.

This morning was all about his stay at Wabasha. You should check it out if you can.

Now, that's too bad! I hadn't been tempted to get a chromatic until hearing that.

Ok, here's a thread for all the chromatic harmonica players to post a song. Maybe we can all learn some new songs from each other. I"ll start off with my rendition of Up the Lazy River.

I bet you'll get the hang of learning by ear really quickly, Erk. In the way of encouragement, learning a tune by ear gets faster each time you do it. Find a version of the tune you really like--a version that grabs your interest and that you think is done well. Sing along until you've got the tune in your head. The cool thing about these old time tunes is that they were meant to be sung--sung by regular people just for the enjoyment of it. That's why I love this music! Even most of the tunes that now are known as instrumental fiddle tunes used to have words, and they're all such fun to sing. Once you've got the tune in your head, it'll come out really easily.

Hey erk, keep listening to a tune until you can whistle it or hum it, then try doing it on the harmonica.

Marcy, Jeremyh

I avoid tabs for the reasons both of you give. Hanging around here on this forum I sometimes think I am missing some fun so I go looking for the sheet music for the, "song of the month", so I can get the timing.

I have tried to learn songs by listening to them but have yet to figure out a technique for doing this, (maybe I am too impatient?), so I have given up on this. Maybe I should try a bit harder, (this is one reason I like this forum, it challenges me).

I do a lot of improvising trying to develop different techniques, slaps, octaves, tongue blocking and haven't concentrated on learning songs. But, again, this forum challenges me and is pushing me towards doing just that.

Still working on Cannonball.

Hello

I agree with Crawforde. There is hardly a difference worth bothering about whether the slide is a straight or a cross slide.

Hi club members.
Does anyone have or can acquire tabulation for that great harp playing by John Fogerty of CCR in 'Run Through The Jungle' ?

Thanks.

Hi everyone.

Introducing myself to the club. Have been playing harp now around 2 1/2 years but not everyday over that period...unfortunately, we all have commitments right? But playing quite well. I enjoy it so much. Play blues mainly, love that sound. Looking to share knowledge, techniques, tips etc with club members. I live in Perth Western Australia but originally from UK.

Cheers.

Great job sound like you are playing to hard on the harmonica blow and draw your holes more easy. You will better tone and sound better. And you...
